To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Illinois Freedom of Information Act., I hereby request the following records:

All records, documents, emails, and other correspondence regarding or related to the 2000 model 182S Cessna airplane as well as any additional equipment attached to the aircraft. This aircraft has serial number 18280714 and holds registration N551SP. This aircraft uses the mode-s code of 51602300 in octal or A704C0 in hexadecimal. I request records, documents, emails, privacy assessments, purchase orders, and other correspondence relating to the equipment.

Additionally, I would like any manuals, procedures, communications protocols, and any communications related to inter-agency coordination. This should include pilot logs, flight plans, and surveillance plans. Specifically, I am looking for any and all data relating to flights for the city of Chicago, Illinois over the last week with a focus on May 31st, and June 1st where the aircraft was documented flying in circles over the demonstrations at an altitude of feet. Any imaging or other surveillance data from onboard collection is additionally requested, as well as any policies which govern the collection, processing, use, and dissemination of this data. Any communication about this data or related data should be included, especially inter-agency communications, and metadata.

This information is part of a journalistic research project involving the Seattle Privacy Coalition.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Jacob Appelbaum

Hello again,

Thank you for your timely reply, I appreciate it very much!

I'm willing to change my request to help meet in the middle, and I'd like to know what areas of my request are time consuming. Is it possible for you to provide an estimated work breakdown for the 287 hour figure in an effort to understand how I might make this request less burdensome? As an example, what would the time estimate be for production of all inter/intra-agency communication related to this aircraft and its various work product(s)?

This request is a public interest request, it is non-profit in nature. It is my opinion that the public interest outweighs the burden of compliance given the current political context in the United States at this time.
